Homer Alaska Fishing Charter
"Where the land ends and the REEL FUN fishing begins"
Welcome to Reel Fun Charters in Homer, Alaska, "THE HALIBUT FISHING CAPITAL OF THE WORLD!" Our Homer fishing charter is a local, family-owned business operated by Alaskan fishing enthusiasts with plenty of experience, one-on-one personal attention, and BIG fish tales! Our goal is to share the thrill and adventure of some of the North's most spectacular scenery and amazing angler opportunities. We're convinced you're going to want to come back again and bring your friends! Reel Fun Charters offers a variety of full day Halibut, Salmon, and Combination or Multi-Species fishing trips.
HALIBUT - are what we absolutely love to catch in Homer! These wide and flat bottomfish feed on smaller fish and crab hiding in craggy depths anywhere from 100 - 2,000 feet in Kachemak Bay and the Cook Inlet. Both eyes are configured on the topside of mottled brown color to camouflage from predators, while its underside belly is pure white.
SALMON - On our full day Homer fishing charters, we typically troll near the coastline of the many islands that lie within 20 miles of Homer. Our method for catching Salmon is by trolling using downriggers and custom tackle.
The King or Chinook Salmon is among the most coveted game fish caught in Alaska. These chrome bright, thick bodied fish commonly weigh between 10-50 pounds. The return of King Salmon to Kachemak Bay runs in May and June, while the more elusive, resident feeder Kings are available year round. The daily limit for King Salmon is 1 per person. The Red Sockeye and Pink Humpy Salmon arrive throughout the middle of the summer. We often catch Silver Coho Salmon when trolling in the fall anywhere from late July well into September. These fish are absolutely silver bright, distinguished by black spots on the back and upper tail, weighing between 10-15 pounds. During the peak of the run, Silvers can be seen jumping everywhere -great fighters and leapers, and mighty tasty, too! The daily limit for Silver Salmon is 3 per person.
COMBO - Combining a day's trip including both species of Halibut and Salmon gives you a great Combination experience. As the summer progresses, the species of Salmon available changes with migration.
LINGCOD - Openings July 1st, the fishery for these big-bellied creatures is in the deep rock bottom out toward the Chugach Islands, near the Gulf of Alaska. These fish can reach weights over 50 pounds and usually strike hard and run fast.
